Elvis Presley – Bossa Nova, Baby lyrics

(words & music by jerry leiber - mike stoller)
I said, take it easy, baby
I worked all day and my feet feel just like lead
You got my shirt tails
Flyin all over the place
And the sweat poppin out of my head
She said, hey, bossa nova, baby
Keep on a workin child
This aint no time to quit
She said, go, bossa nova, baby
Keep on dancin
I'm about to have myself a fit
Bossa nova, bossa nova

I said, hey little mama,
Lets sit down
Have a drink and dig the band
She said, drink, drink, drink
Oh, fiddle-de-dink
I can dance with a drink in my hand
She said hey bossa nova, baby
Keep on workin child
This aint no time to drink
She said go, bossa nova, baby
Keep on dancin
Cause I aint got time to think

I said, come on, baby
Its hot in here
And it's oh so cool outside
If you lend me a dollar
I can buy some gas
And we can go for a little ride
She said, hey bossa nova, baby
Keep on workin child
I aint got time for that
She said, go bossa nova, baby
Keep on dancin
Or I'll find myself another cat
